Invincible by Rev Run featuring Bananarama

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Back in 2008, Bananarama fans were treated to the news of them recording a remake of "Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)" with Rev Run of Run DMC. Now if you know your Bananarama history, then you know that Bananarama released their own version of the song in 1983. It was the last single from their first album, Deep Sea Skiving.

Initially the reports said that Rev Run wanted to sample their version. But in the end, Sara and Keren recorded new vocals. And then we never heard of it ... until today.

Bananarama are Sara and Keren

This morning while looking through my Instagram feed, I saw that Sara posted on the @bananarama_official Instagram page the link to get the song on iTunes.

Sara said, "A little something Keren and I recorded awhile back, you might recognise it."

According to iTunes, the album was released November 1, 2014. But Bananarama fans didn't know until today.

And the new song is not called "Na Na Hey Hey" ... instead, the title is "Invincible."

Add it to your Bananarama collection today. Buy it iTunes here. 

Cheers then,

P.S. If you'd like to learn the classic hand-slap dance routine, watch it here ...
